Senior Humanitarian Advisor Job in Kenya

Role Purpose:

Note: This position holds the
designation of Senior Advisor within Save the Children’s internal
organizational framework. When seconded to UNICEF, the incumbent will assume
the title of Child Protection Area of Responsibility (CP AoR) Information
Management Officer.

Save the Children, in
partnership with the Global Child Protection Area of Responsibility (CP AoR),
is hiring a Case Management IM Senior Advisor, to support and embed project
activities and tools within country-level child protection coordination groups
and case management task forces and to leverage analysis to inform coordination
of humanitarian responses, including strategic decision-making, planning and
advocacy. The Global CP AoR’s mandate, under UNICEF as the Cluster Lead Agency
for Child Protection, is to provide regular leadership, guidance, and technical
support to inter-agency child protection (CP) coordination groups across more
than 25 humanitarian contexts, ensuring well-coordinated and quality responses.
To this end, the Global CP AoR and country coordination groups lead on and
contribute to inter-agency situation monitoring and needs analysis, strategic
planning, response monitoring, and advocacy among other core functions — all of
which involve inter-agency case management coordination.

During 2023, UNICEF and
UNHCR led a process on behalf of the Alliance for Child Protection in
Humanitarian Action to define categories for child protection risks and

with the Case Management IM Senior Advisor, will support the process of rolling
out, adapting, and aligning data categories in light of what is already used
in-country. The Case Management IM Senior Advisor will then provide technical
support and guidance on meaningful, useful data analysis to child protection
case management actors, to identify trends, needs, and gaps. This will further
support trend analysis at the country level but also regional, and global
levels. In addition, further work is needed to standardize costing for child
protection in humanitarian action case management, to ensure funding asks more
accurately and predictably reflect what it takes to address the nature and scale
of child protection needs in humanitarian crises in line with minimum standards.

Through this work, the
Case Management IM Senior Advisor will assist with the application and
adaptation of tools and project outputs at the response level and contribute to
data interpretation and trends analysis that will better inform the situation
and needs monitoring and analysis along with response planning and
